- 1 gallon of distilled water
- 1 cup of white vinegar
- 10 drops of tea tree oil
- In a large bucket or container, mix 1 gallon of distilled water with 1 cup of white vinegar.
- Add 10 drops of tea tree oil to the mixture and stir well.
- Dip a clean cloth or sponge into the mixture and wring out the excess liquid.
- Wipe down your walls with the solution, paying particular attention to areas that tend to collect moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
- Let the solution sit on the walls for a few minutes, then rinse with clean water and dry with a clean cloth.
The vinegar in this solution helps to naturally disinfect and deodorize the walls, while the tea tree oil has antifungal and antimicrobial properties that can help prevent the growth of mold and mildew, which can cause moisture stains.
This solution can be used regularly as part of your cleaning routine to help keep your walls dry and prevent moisture stains from forming.
- 1/2 cup of baking soda
- 1/2 cup of cornstarch
- 10 drops of essential oil (optional)
- In a bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of baking soda and 1/2 cup of cornstarch.
- Add 10 drops of essential oil of your choice, such as lavender or eucalyptus, for a pleasant scent (optional).
- Slowly add enough water to the mixture to form a thick paste.
- Dip a clean cloth or sponge into the paste and apply it to your walls, focusing on areas that tend to collect moisture.
- Let the paste sit on the walls for at least 30 minutes or until it’s completely dry.
- Once the paste is dry, use a clean cloth or brush to gently wipe it off the walls.
The baking soda and cornstarch in this solution help absorb excess moisture from the walls, while the essential oil adds a pleasant scent and may have antifungal properties.
This solution can be used every few months or as needed to help prevent moisture stains and keep your walls dry.
